The craze of 3D printing is increasing as the time passes. There were very news or related articles on 3D printing before this year. Now, you will find lots of articles related to 3D printing on the internet. It is like a storm which started slow but suddenly get on to its peak in no time. Once this was just limited to the industrial works and was used to manufacturing just because it saves time. But now the 3D printer market have become a boon for the industrialists. It saves their lot of money, labour and also produce less waste or we should say no waste at all. This will ultimately going to save their money eventually bigger profit.
There are lots of 3D printers are available in the market right now. You can buy for industrial purpose and for your home also. There are low costs 3D printers also available which will be a better present for someone.
If yiu have got 3D printer at home and you are curious about it and its use then do not worry as we are going to help you. Here are some pro tips for youto take out the best from your 3D printer. Let us start.
1. Get Safety Gear
Safety should be the first thing to consider if you are going to operate any kind of machine. If you have a resin 3D printer then you have the best 3D printer as it can manufacture almost everything. It uses UV light which makes its products more fine and accurate. UV light can be harmful for your skin so be aware of it. Resin on one hand is also dangerous for your health. It’s fumes can be fatal and if someone touches it then they should get medical checkup.
If you have laser 3D printer then you should not worry much but it would be better if you wear a noise cancellation buds as it produces noises which can be bad for your ears.
Disposable gloves is a must. You should wear it everytime you are working with 3D printer no matter what kind of. Black colour gloves will be best as you can see if any of the resin is stick to your hand or not. The gloves should be hard in just case if you have to scratch some molded material from the printer’s surface. Then comes the respiratory mask which is must needed if you have resin 3D printer. Breathing molded material can cause serious lung problems. So be careful when you are operating a 3D printer as this is not a kid’s toy.
2. Read the Manual
Reading about your machine is very important. You should know about your machine as well as it’s working and it’s about it’s safety measures. After reading your manual carefully you will be able to assemble your 3D printer before you start any making. While assembling your machine you must calibrate it’s parts also otherwise you are going to print a more damaged and failed prints. Spending more time to make one thing is far better than making a failed thing first and then making the perfect one.
There are some 3D printers which will be assembled in factory before coming at your door. So, if you have one of these then you don’t have to worry about it’s assembly and calibration.
3. Be Patient
After the assembly and calibration stuff you are now ready to print your ideas. Before going to start one thing you should have other than safety gears is patience. Yes, it is required if you want your work to be perfect. It will take lot of time some may even take half a day so be patient while your work is in progress. It takes time because it’s working involve step by step and layer by layer manufacturing. If you want your work to be more precise then you know that it will require lot of time and calculations. Bigger your product the more time it will take.
4. Always Be Tinkering
Since it takes a lot of time this does not mean that you should not be worry about it and while your work is in progress you can watch Netflix and chill. No, this is not the right way to handle your 3D printer. It involves a lot of messy materials, resins which can get stuck to interior of your 3D printer and may impact on its working. So while work is in progress keep an eye on it and clean it timely.
The more creative you will be more admirable your product will look. Print new ideas, take your time to think and think out of the box to create something new. Afterall, you are the creator of your things.
